An Appeal For Donations

On behalf of the Trustees I am making an appeal for donations to the Foundation we have set up in Bruce’s name.
Bruce’s passion was to help coaches, at all levels, it was a passion that he put into practice, and many coaches in the UK and other parts of the world can all recall and relate to the way he helped them – whether it was a school teacher helping their pupils, or a club coach trying to enhance their knowledge that they could pass on to their athletes, or just sitting down and ‘shooting the breeze’ with international coaches, that would increase his own knowledge to implement with his own athletes, or to pass onto others.
Bruce’s philosophy was that as a coach – you never, ever stop learning.
The Foundation has been established to continue with his passion of helping coaches from any country that has little, or no, coaching development, or just those who need help and advice.
Throughout his life, Bruce coached almost all the track and field event groups at some stage the event group that always remained his main passion was Hurdles.
The major objective of the The Foundation will be to support the development of ‘Hurdles’ at all levels, from assisting with the supply of equipment, helping athletes interested in hurdling being linked with a suitable coach if they do not have one, to helping current hurdles coaches, and their athletes to develop further.
The Trustees of the Foundation are keen to start it’s work as soon as possible, but we need funds to do that; PLEASE SUPPORT US.
You can do this in one of two way, either click on the “Donate Now” button below and use the Paypal option
or by sending a cheque , made payable to the Bruce Longden Coaching Foundation to:

A very strong message, and wise words, from one of our Trustees, Sally Gunnell on International Women's Day #IWD2021 #ChooseToChallenge#IWD2021 💜#ChooseToChallengeI raise my hand to challenge gender inequality and bias.When I was an elite athlete, I was told several negative things about myself and my ability, by influential individuals in my sport, that had I chosen to listen to them, I may not have achieved my 4 major track titles.Luckily for me I chose not to listen to them. The people that were important to me were positive and supportive.I say to all women, you have the power to be the best you can be. Choose to believe in yourself, choose to be positive, choose to be your best. Choose it for YOU! You got this! 💜#powerfulwomen #genderequality #womensupportingwomen #womenempowerment #womeninspiringwomen #womeninbusiness #womeninfluencers #mondaymotivation #mondayvibes #monday ...

With the new Government regulations put in place yesterday, and the ever changing situation with regard to guidelines from England Athletics, we will not be holding any 300m/400m Hurdles Training days from October to December 2020. We did have dates booked, which we have now cancelled, and still have dates booked for January to March 2021, and will make a decision towards the end of the year with regard to these.Obviously we are all disappointed that we cannot go ahead with these, but the most important thing is the safety of you all, both coaches and athletes. Train when you can, in a safe environment.So please continue to stay safe and stay healthy. ...

Here is Kathleen Shuttleworth's 4th Strength Workout. Filmed on one of Cape Town's stunning beaches, and accompanied by her two 4-legged assistants 🤣. Enjoy this sequence, but most importantly keep training hard. #active4life #stayhome #staysafe #stayhealthy ...

So here is Kathleen Shuttleworth's next strength workout, as she suggests this is a session that can be done after your normal workout, whether that be a run or technical session. Alternatively, dip in and out and put together your own session from the suggestions she makes. The most important thing is to be out there (or in there!) being active! #active4life #stayhome #staysafe #stayhealthy ...
